Bloggers without Borders (BwoB) is a blogger-based charity whose mission is to help people—bloggers and readers alike—by harnessing the good will of the blogging community. Its founders are Maggy Keet of ThreeManyCooks, Erika Pineda-Ghanny of The Ivory Hut, and Aimee Wimbush-Bourque of Simple Bites. BwoB officially launches in July 2011.
Maggy, Erika and Aimee of Bloggers without Borders are raising money to help tornado victims across the United States. Sheila from Strawberry Cake’s family has been affected by this tragedy and Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen’s uncle lost the family business when the store was flattened by a tornado. BwoB is raising money for the families in Joplin and Etna/Denning, AR community that have been affected by this tragedy. Read more about their efforts here.
I wanted to help spread the word so I’m posting this message and the donate badge on my blog. You can donate via the button on this post and the funds will go directly to Sheila and Kristan so they can distribute the money to the people, organizations or local efforts that need help.
Please give $1, $5 or as much as your financial situation allows. This money will go to people directly affected by the disaster—given to the people who need it by someone from our own community.
BwoB’s goal is to raise at least $2,000 so that we can give each blogger and her community $1,000. Please help us reach that goal!
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
